I've never taught a horse to go out on trails alone so I thought i'd ask
Those who have.
Please don't say just get on and go, cause im not going to lie.. I don't have the bravery to do that. LOL! Im to afraid of ANY horse, let alone Chance, that's not good alone on trails to take off throw me then run away and get hurt some how. Plus we are near roads unless you get to teh deeper trails and that's risky cause they go all around the town. She's great when it comes to groups but I would like to go out on trails sometimes when people aren't around. You know?
I've been taking Chance on a lot of hand walks.
Would ground driving on trails help??? That way their in front and get to see things with out having the human check it out first??
Any ideas would be great. The weather is amazing here so I don't want to keep the poor girl in the arena alot, and since I've got to explore the trails on little last week and see how much there is to do out there, like jumping ditches and cantering up and down feilds etc.. I LOVE it.
Thanks in advance!
